STATEMENT OF INTENT:

We are INFLUENCE.

We are a COMPETITIVE COLLABORATIVE.

A collective of individuals assembled to create films.
Some of us are filmmakers, some of us are not.

A rotating group of members meets bi-weekly to present one "obstruction" each, in a randomly selected order each time.

Obstructions are ideas or rules imposed upon the filmmaking process. After each of these sessions, every member produces a film which conforms to all obstructions presented at the meeting. If they do not, they are permitted to experience

STATEMENT OF INTENT:

We are INFLUENCE.

We are a COMPETITIVE COLLABORATIVE.

A collective of individuals assembled to create films.
Some of us are filmmakers, some of us are not.

A rotating group of members meets bi-weekly to present one "obstruction" each, in a randomly selected order each time.

Obstructions are ideas or rules imposed upon the filmmaking process. After each of these sessions, every member produces a film which conforms to all obstructions presented at the meeting. If they do not, they are permitted to experience feelings of deep personal shame.

Recurring members are welcome to produce a film for any instance of INFLUENCE, even if they miss that instance's obstruction session.

At the end of a one to two week period, we screen our films in a theatre setting. Most films resulting from INFLUENCE will be opened to the public through this channel; at least one member refuses to share his work to the public.

The idea of subverting and obstructing the filmmaking process in this way was influenced by Lars Von Trier's 2003 film 'The Five Obstructions.'

==

INFLUENCE is an experiment.
The products of its assembly will be consistently unknown.

Anyone who is willing to take the rules of INFLUENCE seriously is invited.

We will break each other.

Signed,

-INFLUENCE
